Lobby group in DC in front of capital

Join us in solidarity for environmental justice

Nuclear weapons production and testing have made a catastrophic impact on our planet, disproportionately targeting BIPOC communities. We need to stand up, and demand our tax dollars go toward public services, not devastating weapons of war.

We support the Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and we lobby every year with our congressional representatives and senators to do the same. Prohibition of nuclear weapons will ensure a livable planet for future generations.

The treaty declares that the production, testing, possession, transfer, and threatened use of nuclear weapons is illegal. The treaty mandates assisting survivors of nuclear mining, production or testing, and it requires the clean-up of environmental damage. This treaty has 92 signatories from Austria to Zimbabwe. And we want America to join them.
